It is noteworthy that the state patronage proved to be instrumental in the development of religious literature notable the tafsir and fatawa literature. Thus on...

Acarya Samantabhadra’s Svayambhustotra (2 nd century CE) is a fine composition in Sanskrit dedicated to the adoration of the Twenty-four Tîrthankara , the Most Worshipful Supreme Beings. Acarya Samantabhadra was one of the most impelling proponents of the Jaina doctrine of anekantavada, a philosophical system which maintains that reality has multifarious aspects and that a complete apprehension of it must necessarily take into account all these aspects. Non-appreciation of this jewel of...

A trance is an altered state of consciousness. There are a number of different types, ranging from spiritually open trances of mediums to the meditative states reached in many religions; however, all part only of the brain functionally. Historically, some people have attached great importance to a state of trance, since it occupies a space between sleeping and full wakefulness, and people in this state are often highly suggestible. In addition to being a part of religious practices, as it is a...

The first word of the Yogasutras and the Brahmasutras, and of  many primary Vedic texts, begin with the word Atha. But the different meanings of this single word have to be contradictory one another according to the subjects those they deal with such as  Nonduality, duality, etc. The Sivasutras, a step advance in establishing Supreme Nonduality, speaks of Shambhava Yoga, where there is no Atha or Iti. So this is Natha, the genetics of Tantra Shastras, whether for Visvanatha, Badrinatha or...

Nobles of Sultanate period formed the elite class of medieval Indian society. The nobility enjoyed primacy after the establishment of the Sultanate under Sultan Iltutmish. Thus many of the Shamsi nobles, rose from very humble beginnings, became men of power and influence. These nobles who made history by their deeds of valour and other virtues had their own individual traits of characters. Although evidence throws light on the socio-cultural aspect of the Shamsi nobles, but the scattered...

In the Madhva cult, Sri Sode Vadiraja Matha entertains magnanimous greatness. But, many people are not knowing the greatness of the lineage. The rich tradition of customary observance and service rendered are really praise worthy and noteworthy. Even the contribution of this Matha excels in all respects. The present revered Swamiji of Sri Sode Vadiraja Matha Sri Vishwavallabhatirtharu made up his mind to bring out such publication which could apprise the devotees of the greatness of this Matha.
